Impending doom

Poetry By: Mr Benn

As it's near to halloween I thought I'd write something a little Scary (It was for me anyway!)

I woke up in a cold, cold sweat

Malevolence pervaded the atmosphere

My heart was pounding. My nerves afire

"Something evil is coming here!"

I tried to follow my same routine

Shower, shave, head off to work

But my hands were shaking, a nervous wreck

My self-control coming unstuck

Somehow I made it through the day

I can't believe I didn't crack

Jumping at shadows, and trembling legs

I thought I'd have a heart attack

Returning home felt like a trip to hell

I could feel its presence in every room

My heart leapt as my doorbell rang

The sound of my impending doom

I approached the door like the condemned man

I could feel the evil, the foulness, the WRONG!

And there it stood in front of me

"Hello mum, are you staying long?"
